Mine's just over 5%. The midwife who delivered Cameron had a 3% transfer rate. That rate does sound high, but the population of women she's delivering makes a difference. The midwife who delivered Cameron delivered 80% Amish women and drugs don't even enter into their thinking. The more first time moms a midwife delivers the higher her transfer rate will be. A lot of midwives find that a good number of their transfers are women who change their minds and decide they want drugs.
